2018 Fall League

Fall League registration is now open. TO REGISTER, CLICK on the BALL to the RIGHT --------->

Our Fall Ball age divisions are different from our Spring Season divisions. The Fall 2018 baseball age is the player's age as of August 31, 2018.

  • 8 and 9 year-olds will play together using AA fields (65' bases, 46' mound)
  • 10 and 11 year-olds will use AAA fields (70' bases, 48' mound)
  • 12 and 13 year-olds will use a Prep 13 field (80' bases and 54' mound)

This fall season, DGYB will offer families a more development-focused experience for players ages 6 and 7.  We are organizing a smaller, 6u/7u league to teach, practice and play basic skills as we do in spring ball. Features include coach-pitch and 6-on-6 "speed ball" to ensure kids receive plenty of individualized instruction.

In Memory of Our Friend and Colleague Joe Koma

In Memory of Joe Koma

Joe Koma, the longtime DGYB Director of Field Maintenance, passed away suddenly on January 5, 2018. Joe was a selfless volunteer who worked countless hours maintaining our playing fields and field equipment. He was the ultimate behind the scenes volunteer who made our fields playable even in conditions that shut down fields elsewhere. Joe also served many years as a Scoutmaster. Downers Grove lost a true friend to our youth.
Our Condolences to Joe's family. His colleagues on the DGYB Board will miss Joe greatly.

Fall Ball Registration is now open.
